xgdg >>good morning i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm anthony mason. here are a few stories we'll be looking at on "cbs this morning" saturday. the biggest scandal to hit the vatican. the pope's personal butler admits to giving out secret information and stands trial this morning. the verdict could have profound implications for the roman catholic church. polls show mitt romney's path to the white house may be narrowing. his best chance to turn the tide is wednesday's first presidential debate. with the stakes incredibly high, both candidates have begun preparing for their big night. he's a former governor,
8:01am
action star and weight lifter. now arnold schwarzenegger is looking to become the comeback kid. he's written a memoir, but his first test comes on "60 minut " minutes." >> i think it was the stupidest thing i've done in the whole relationship. >> will there be a second act for schwarzenegger? he's the british secret agent with the best gadgets and the hottest villains. his name bond, james bond. he's turn 50 and he may be trading in his shaken martini for a beer, but still nobody does it better. >> the name is bond, james bond. all that and so much more on "cbs this morning" saturday, september 29, 2012. captioning funded by cbs i like our theme song, but
8:02am
the bond theme song is pretty good, too. welcome to the weekend, nice to see you. >> good to see you, too. we begin with the trial that just ended at the vatican and a scandal that pope benedict describes as having brought sadness to his heart, his butler accused of leaking his personal papers to journalist. allen pizzey is in rome. >> reporter: the trial began on time and ended before its scheduled three hours. but the outcome cannot yet be reported due to a vatican-imposed embargo. the trial began on time in a small courtroom in vatican city. the maniac cuesed, former papal butler paulo gabrielle lee was present along with his female italian lawyer. if convicted of taking documents from the desk of pope benedict xvi he faces up to four years in
8:03am
jail. a vatican i.t. specialist who face as lesser charge of aiding and abetting was represented in court by his lawyer. the documents leaked were widely seemed arizona being seen as discrediting one of the pope's closest confidants who serves as secretary of state. the case sheds an embarrassing light, showing what by its very nature is supposed to be a beacon of truth and forgiveness is more akin to a major corporation. only eight reporters were allowed to cover the trial and embargoes were placed on reporting it. the fact that even limited access is being given is part of the vatican's new pose of transparency. the court could have pardoned gabriellely and thus avoided much of the story to light but allowed the trial to go ahead oopsz. the butler confessed to the crime even before he went to 2r50i. some doubts have been expressed
8:04am
about that confession. he never said who else was involved so a papal pardon, while probably is still not necessarily a done thing, anthony. >> allen pizzey in rome. >> the vatican has seen its share of sensational trials. two of the most famoused occurred in the 17th century. the scientist galileo was indicted for claiming the earth circled the sun, ordered to announce his views. the other was giordano bruno. he was convicted of harah see and burned at the stake. even those cases did not involve a breach of trust by a papal aide. father robert gall is an associate professor at the pontifical university of the holy cross. he joins us live this morning. good to see you, father thank you for being with us. >> it's good to be here. >> so how significant is this within the vatican?
8:05am
>> well, it's unprecedented in the history of the church to have such a trial that, of course, it's unprecedented certainly in the history of the modern church because it has set up a 1i68 court. it's a civil court which is also opened up to the public. >> father gall when the butler was arrested, he told investigators that this could be a healthy thing to bring the church back on the right track. was he in any sense right? >> it seems that the butler was trying in some way to help the pope. in fact, the information that was revealed through the documents that the butler stole is in no way incriminating of the pope himself. in fact, the pope comes off as very kind and gentle throughout all those documents. it doesn't make sense what the butler is claiming. that's one of the things they want, to ascertain the fullness of the truth which is what the pope wants. >> we're expecting a pardon from
8:06am
the pope ultimately. why? >> perhaps. the pope hasn't given any indication he will pardon him. he has indicated his great affection for paulo gab iele. the entire family lives in the vatican and are citizens of the vatican city state. nonetheless, i'm sure the pope wants to first determine that he has fully revealed the truth as to how he committed his crimes. >> do you think, father gall, the pope will be forced to make changes within the vatican because of this case? >> well, the pope has already made changes, changes in view of greater transparency, changes in view of really incorporating due process, full rule of law within the vatican, and this case that's going on right now, this trial is a demonstration of it. it's the first time the media has been invited inside the vatican for such a criminal trial. >> father robert gall, thank you for joining us. now to the race for the white house, today is expected
8:07am
to be a quiet date for both president obama and mitt romney. neither candidate has any public events planned. behind the scenes, they're cramming for their first debate. chip reid is traveling with the romney campaign in boston. >> reporter: good morning, anthony. this debate is huge for both candidates. some republican strategists say if does not do well in this, it could be downhill from there. and president obama's advisors are very worried he could make a mistake giving mitt romney the opportunity he needs. >> my opponent thinks it's fair that somebody who makes $20 million a year like he does plays a lower tax rate than a cop or teacher who makes $50,000. >> at campaign appearances friday, president obama and mitt romney seemed to be previewing next wednesday's debate when the battle over taxes is expected to take center stage. romney say ts he'll hold the misrepresenting his record. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans! >> reporter: the stakes in the
8:08am
debate are so high that both candidates will soon retreat into political cocoons to get ready. on sunday the president will begin three days of intensive preparation in nevada. on monday, romney will hunker down for two days in denver, the site of wednesday's debate. in romney's sessions president obama will be played by ohio senator rob portman who was on romney's short list for vice president. on stage with the president will be massachusetts senator john kerry who will play romney. kerry and romney knew each other well when romney was governor of massachusetts both campaigns are desperately trying to lower expectations. in a memo leaked to the press a top romney adviser called the president one of the most talented political communicators in modern history and noted the president has engaged in eighty-one-on-one presidential debates while this is romney's first. the obama campaign is also down playing expectations. they say he hasn't had enough
8:09am
time to prepare for the debate because he's been so busy as president dealing with a series of crises in the middle east. >> chip reid in boston. thanks. for more on campaign 2012, we turn to jonathan allen, a senior political correspondent from politico. jonathan, good morning to you. >> good morning, rebecca. >> i want to begin where chip left off. the president's advisors say he's been so busy dealing with international affairs coming into the debate he hasn't had a chance to prepare. some of the tlmts coming out of these international affairs, the administration's stance, for example, on what exactly happened in benghazi has recently changed. i wonder how that might impact this debate. >> i would be shocked if there wasn't some questioning from that either from the moderators or at least perhaps some attention drawn to it by mitt romney. this is a huge issue for the president, is his policy working in north africa, in the middle
8:10am
east? what happened there? did the administration tell the truth? if they didn't tell the truth, why didn't they tell the truth? i absolutely expect this to be part of the debate. the idea that the president is somehow not practiced to speak in public or engage in public debate baugs he hasn't had more than a few days in nevada to prepare is a little ridiculous. >> jonathan, with obama's lead widening in the polls, how important are these debates in your view for romney? more specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almost every swing state thement opened up a significant lead outside the margin of error in most cases. if tea lex were to be held today, it would be a shock if mitt romney were to win. he has to find a way to shake up that narrative. >> one of the things we've seen in the polls is older voters moving more in the direction towards president obama, and one
8:11am
of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan several years ago, what they've said is we hope we can play even on medicare and this is in congressional races and senate races. the idea is they want to be able to play even on it. no one saying on the republican side we think we can win 70% or 75% based on this. that's usually where politicians want to be. they want to have issues that resonate with 75% of the people, not half the people. so if they're even at that 50% mark which i don't think they are right now, that would be considered a level of victory. it's hard to go into areas with
8:12am
lots of seniors and say i want to change the way medicare is structured. these people have been paying into the system for their entire lives. even if it doesn't affect them. even if it doesn't take effect for another ten years, it's a program a lot would like to see be there for their children and grandchildren. >> mr. romney has diminishing opportunities to turn this race around. is there greater importance on the first debate thanks say, the second and third. does he have to get off on a really strong footing here? >> i expect more people will watch the first debate than the second or third, unless there's some great inflection point in the first debate that draws people's attentions to the second and third debate. the challenge for mitt romney going into this debate is not necessarily to get a hit in on barack obama, but better to communicate with the public why he's best positioned to help them. i think he's had some trouble with that throughout the campaign. i think the video that came out with him talking about 47% of the people being somewhat
8:13am
dependent upon the government, i think that hurt his ability to connect and say to folks i want to be president for all of america. i think he's got an opportunity in this first debate to communicate directly with the public. i won't give him advice, but i would just say i think that's a challenge for him right now. >> jonathan allen, thanks so much for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> look forward to having you back with us soon. a former chemist at the massachusetts states drug lab was arrested friday. she's accused of faking drug test results. that's raising doubts about thousands of cases she handled, some of those convicted are already back on the streets and many more could be released from jail. she could face additional charges. elaine quijano is in boston with us. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, rebecca. annie dookhan's co-workers used to jokingly call her super woman. she seemed to analyze so many more drug samples in the lab than anyone else. investigators believe that was a
8:14am
warning sign pointing to her wrongdoing. in her nine years working at the massachusetts state crime lab, officials say annie dookhan handled more than 60,000 drug tests. police say the former chemist admitted she altered or faked test results, forged colleague's initials on paperwork and skipped proper procedures. >> annie dookhan's alleged actions corrupted the integrity of the entire legal justice system. >> reporter: 1100 people prosecuted due to her work. already a dozen have been released because of questions about how she handled evidence. >> everyone who has been convicted in the last five to six years is possibly the victim of a very substantial miscarriage of justice. and on the other hand, a lot of very dangerous people might get out of jail. >> reporter: dookhan is also alleged to have lied under oath, claiming the have a master's degree in chemistry from the university of massachusetts. several co-workers had
8:15am
suspicions because chemists typically analyze about 150 samples a month. dookhan was testing more than 500. according to a massachusetts state police report when asked about that, dookhan said i screwed up big time. i messed up. i messed up bad. it's my fault. i don't want the lab to get in trouble. >> if you can get your results done quickly and handle a big volume, you're perceived to be a good worker. we do not have evidence to date of any other kind of motive. >> reporter: the state crime lab was shut down last month. special courts are now being set up to handle the thousands of cases that expected to be reopened. as for annie dookhan, if she is, in fact, convicted of obstruction of justice and lying under oath, she could face more than 20 years in prison. anthony and rebecca. >> elaine quijano, thank you. senior correspondent john miller, former assistant director of the fbi and former los angeles police department deputy commissioner is here with
8:16am
us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> hundreds of cases, thousands of cases. the fallout from this has got to be huge in massachusetts. >> i think it's bigger even than they are projected. you have to remember the type of offenses she is being accused of. let's talk about the cases where she's the primary chemist and testified, we're talking about 1,100 cases. that's a lot to go through. the cases where she was somewhere involved in the process of the chain of custody of the evidence and the testings, now we're talking 61,000 drug cases involving 31,000 defendants. you have a situation where the governor has ordered his chief judge to set up special courts that may be working literally over time into the night to start to process the claims by defendants that they were involved. can we just take this one step further? one of the allegations is not only that she fake the testing, but that in things that came
8:17am
back testing negative for drugs, she would sprinkle drugs in from real narcotics. that opens up a universe of claims from defendants, defendants who may well be extraordinarily guilty who may say my test came back positive. the work sheet says she was working that day, she could have sprinkled -- do you see where this is going? >> which brings up a question about motive. i want to come to the people, those potentially accused of something they didn't dorks but those who may have their trims thrown out, their convictions thrown out because she tampered with the evidence. >> i think the defense lawyer interviewed in this case was right, which is some miscarriages of justice will be righted here. some innocent people get out of jail. a whole lot of people are going to get out of jail, too. >> do we have any sense of why she did this? she hasn't been clear on that. she said she just wanted to be the best worker possible. i think we all understand, if you're going to be the best worker possible, you're not
8:18am
faking results. i think there may be a kind of a sub text here which is -- this could all be cbs's fault -- in the world of csi, the programs we broadcast, it has taken the work of the crime lab which used to be a fairly dull, civil service, going through the motions job, and glamorized it into this really cool profession that has drawn a lot of people who wanted to be associated with it. kind of the new genre of police heroes. here is a woman who wasn't really qualified, overstated her qualifications and wanted to be the hero of the police lab. i think a lot of this is she wanted to be really well regarded in the field. >> all right, john. john miller, thanks. tens of thousands of people are expected to protest today outside of spain's parliament in madrid. it will be the latest in a series of demonstrations against the spanish government for imposing severe spending cuts and tax hikes.
8:19am
this protest took place on wednesday. spain is the eurozone's fourth largest economy, but struggling to recover from the deep recession gripping europe. james clap per, says the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was, quote, a deliberate and organized terrorist attack. four people were killed in the september 11th assault including ambassador christopher stevens. clapper's assessment comes after the obama administration was criticized for standing by its original assessment that the attack was a spontaneous response to an anti-muslim film. score one for the record folks. homer bailey of the cincinnati reds pitched a no-hitter last night against the pirates in pittsburgh. the score was 1-0. bailey struck out ten and walked only one, the seventh no-hitter in the major leagues this season and the first for the reds in 24 years. congratulations to homer bailey who you know with that name just had to grow up to become a major
8:20am
leaguer. it's inevitable. all right. 20 minutes after the hour. here is lonnie quinn with our first check of the wealth ever. >> good morning everybody. let's get right to the satellite and weather picture. there are two areas of wet weather. you look at the picture and says one in texas and one off to the new england coast. yu'd be wrong. it's all one system. the second one is an upper level low around idaho. light showers for you. this is all one big giant cold front up around new england that's pushing offshore. however, this will be a drencher for texas into the sayer yeah around louisiana and oklahoma. how much rain are we talking about? a lot of people will see one to three inches. talking norman, oklahoma to dallas to shreveport. remember how dry you've been in western texas, that's going to bring about flash flooding concerns. that's a quick look at the national picture. here is a closer look at the
8:21am
weather for your weekend. for your weekend. all right, guys. here we are getting ready to go into october and portions of california say around bak bakersfield 100 degrees. >> the "jetsons" aired 50 years ago this week. it lasted 24 episodes. most baby boomers can sing the theme song. and this cartoon accurately predicted life half a century later. >> reporter: it may be 50 years old but this cartoon showed us what our life would be like today in the 21st century. the story lines came out of
8:22am
traditional live action sitcoms. george jetson headed the typical american family. consisting of his boy elroy, jane his wife, and daughter judy. voiced by now 88-year-old actress janet waldo. >> the reason why i think it was appealing is that the family was so like regular life. they were very normal people. and they just happened to live in the future. >> reporter: it was one of the first cartoons to air in primetime and the very first show to air in abc on color. its influence was felt far beyond television historians. >> it's probably the most important vision of the future offered in the last 50 years in that it shaped how everybody thought the future would look. >> reporter: it predicted many inventions we take for granted today from robot maids, to
8:23am
flying cars. just seven months before the "jetsons" premiered john glenn made history by orbiting the earth and that september president kennedy they'd this prediction. >> we shall send to the moon 240,000 miles away from the control station in houston a giant rocket. >> reporter: it may have been a cartoon but a very real reflection of where the nation's gaze was focused and where we hope to go in the future. love it. we'll be right back. these days,
8:24am
i woke up with this horrible rash on my right side. an intense burning sensation like somebody had set it on fire. and the doctor said, cindie, you have shingles. he said, you had chickenpox when you were a little girl... i said, yes, i did. i don't think anybody ever thinks they're going to get shingles.

apple ceo tim cook offered a rare apology on friday for all the weird stuff on the new but error riddled apple map application. >> and in another extremely rare move cook gave directions to those looking for directions telling them to check out some map apps made by other companies. he sent them to the competition. >> you got to be honest about these thing. >> welcome to cbs "this morning saturday." i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm anthony mason. >> arnold schwarzenegger is attempting to make a come back. he conquered body building,

movies and politics. but a personal scandal brought him down and destroyed his marriage and his reputation. his memoir," total recall, my unbelievable story" goes on sale monday. his come back, he'll try to begin it tomorrow when he talks to lesley stahl on "60 minutes." >> so you lied to her? >> you can say that. >> she gave up her television career for you. i mean, wow. was this just the most unbelievable act of betrayal to maria? >> i think it was the stupidest thing i've done in the whole relationship. it was terrible. i inflicted tremendous pain on maria and unbelievable pain on the kids. >> what does maria think about you writing the memoir and bringing this up? >> i think that maria is, you know, wishing me well with
8:32am
everything that i do. >> has she read it? >> no. at this point she hasn't read anything. >> but she knows you're discussing -- >> she knows it's about my whole life and that i would not write a book and kind of leave out that part and make people feel like wait a minute, are we just getting a book about his success stories and not talk about his failures and that's not the book i wanted to write. i wanted to write a book about me. here's my life. >> joining us now is biographer, who wrote a cover story on schwarzenegger for "newsweek" magazine. what is the goal here with arnold schwarzenegger writing the book, speaking out and is it noble? is there any chance that we get anything noble out of this? >> i don't think nobility has
8:33am
anything to do with it. he's done everything to prepare for tomorrow evening on "60 minutes." >> when you look at what he had to say there, it's not exactly - didn't feel particularly forth come. >> find it troubling. he said what he did with the housekeeper was stupid. that's way he sees the world. it wasn't stupid it was immoral. that's not how he sees it. you ask an american what his morals are he's thinking you're talking sex. europeans think it's politics. >> then he says i couldn't write this book without including these parts but people will buy the book because of the scandalous parts. >> that's the crucial point. in other words, he said he turned down $5 million fromcitifromcy ti -- from simon and shuster. he pretends he's doing this for, i want to tell my whole story.
8:34am
he's doing it because he wants, that's the reason we're talking about him this morning, because we have this new tabloid news peg. maria is absolutely distraught. why did he have to do this now? she's gone through a year and a half of hell why does he have to tell this story and use this to promote himself. >> what's his life like now? >> one of his friends said he's like citizen kane. done have his old friends. he's trying to rebuild his career. trying to do this thing. he's used to in the center of attention. if this book isn't number one we'll be one unhappy guy. >> is there a second act for his acting career? >> you answered this. his summary was expendable 2. >> i see an oscar. one of the interesting thing you points out he managed to stay
8:35am
out of tabloids when he was governor in l.a. >> when he ran for governor, he was in the tabloids all the time. if he ran for governor he came out again. american media had purchased the muscle magazine, the body building magazines. they got together and made a deal. arnold would continue to do stories for muscle magazines in return the "national enquirer" and the globe would no longer write tabloid stories about him. only person in america, athlete, celebrity, politicians didn't have to worry about that. now he's reinvented himself using the tabloids. >> thanks for joining us. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> you can see all of lesley stahl's interview with arnold schwarzenegger tomorrow night on "60 minutes" right here on cbs. now here's lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. good morning. well, let's get over here to the big old map. we can show you where the big rain is. it's in texas notifying louisiana, portions of oklahoma. some could see up to five inches
8:36am
of rain. that's here in the usa. want to quickly show you, something that's going on in the tropics. we have tropical storm nadine. it's way in the middle of the ocean. no threat to land. but what's interesting about tropical storm nadine, look at these facts. been around for a while. an average storm life is five to ten days from the time that storms are born typically off the coast of africa. nadine is now 19 days old. forecast to last another five days. that's not going record but definitely one of the longer storms. speaking of like longer storms and seeing more activity we still have until november 30th until hurricane season end. a very active season thus far. we see the possibility for more out there. that's a quick look at the national and international picture. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.
8:37am
and the prettiest weather today is up around the northern great lakes. enjoy that. anthony, over to you. >> up next she wants to re-ignite the debate over the wall street bailout and taking on some of the biggest names in america finance. but they are fighting back. we'll talk with sheila bair, former chairwoman of the fdic. you're watching cbs "this morning saturday".

8:41am
now a key regulator is speaking out. sheila bair was the chair of the fdic and her new book takes us behind closed doors during those times. it's called "bull by the horns." the book is published by simon and shuster, a division of cbs and we're joined now by sheila bair. good morning. so in this book you talk about the bank bailout and you say it worked but could it have been handled differently. that's the question that plagues me to this day. >> the bank bailouts were all about making the big financial institutions profitable again. it really wasn't -- the assumption was if you helped them you would be helping the broader economy. it didn't work out that way. granted, in late 2008 we were dealing with a lot of unknown, a lot of uncertainty, a lot of lack of information. in 2009 we continued very pro
8:42am
large financial institution bailout policies instead of imposing pain and accountability at that point. and tacking on mortgages nuclear weapon say pain and accountability. what do you mean by that? >> more people should have lost their jobs. more banks should have been required, the sickest ones should have been restructured this period should have been asked to get their bad assets off their books and sell them into some type of facility that we propose to publicly announce and it was never implemented to get the mortgages especially off their balance sheets and restructured. really the mortgages are at the heart of the problem and we never really effectively tackled those mortgages and our economic recovery continues to suffer from a bloated financial sector and very morbid housing market. new say you butted heads with timothy geithner who was the head of the new york fed and now the treasury secretary. what was the problem between the two of you? >> it really was a basic
8:43am
